Grateful Dead Live at Sam Boyd Silver Bowl, U.N.L.V. on 1995-05-19
- Live concert
- Grateful Dead
- DeadLists Project
-This is the best audience of this show I've heard. All band members are audible!
-Minor level adjustments at the beginning of Picasso Moon
-Very slight static in Althea- .183 seconds
there are sbe's on the last track of disc 1 and disc 3 which shouldn't have any detrimental impact on the sound. there are also non-canonical headers on all tracks which should not affect the audio quality of these when burnt to disc, but will show up as an error on shntool under the wav heading - if this really bothers you, you can STRIP the wav's with shntool before burning to cdr - Chris Ladner.

Subject: First of 3 days..
So sincere. Looking at him, I was close. He sounded like he was talking to someone. Almost crying. It hit me.
He wants to be with his Mom, Grandma, Dad..
(I avoided knowing stuff about the band so was not aware of Jerry's addictions or any current GD issues . )..It remains now knowing what I know about Jerrys issues..not changed..those "Wanna be with you.." you you..
Was done,.gave our Saturday and Sunday tickets away at the hotel..

This was the last show I saw before Betty Ford killed Jerry. Drive out from Breckenridge, CO at the last minute.
I remember STEAMING hot weather, and firehose 'showers' around the rim of the stadium.
I walked in early that day (was all banged up) and sat right in front of the stage railing while the Dave Matthews Band opened the show.
The concrete was so hot you couldn't even sit on it unless you had something underneath you!
What a weekend. Lake Mead was ROCKING that weekend, and I didn't make the next two shows at Sam Boyd. Looking back, I wish I did.
The end of an era was near but came too soon.
Subject: Worst of an average run
While I certainly don't approve of the damaging of peoples personally property I can't help but laugh when I read that somebody keyed a Yugo in one of the reviews below. Heck they could of cut the door off with a Ginsu knife. Also a good way to avoid smelling like urine is to open your fly before peeing.

Subject: Well...it was worth the trip with my folks!
My mother being a high class woman did leave her 2pt diamond braclet on and being so sunny, wherever I roamed the UNLV stands, I knew where my parents were. They truly enjoyed the show mainly the encore.
So the way I look at this show:
3 GD Tickets: $325
3 NW Airfare: $350
Hotel: beats me, parents took care of that.
Car Rental: $200
3 bottle Water: $300
The Dead/Parents/Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds: PRICELESS!
Subject: 2 Stars
Subject: 95 high
Subject: Last Dead Show
Subject: No. 2
Subject: vegas 95
Subject: Louisiana Boy Sees Dead
Subject: trippin' in the desert
This was not the best of the three, but the mere size of the crowd was enough to make it an experience in it's own right. Second Set was a highlite with the HCSS opener followed up by a Playin' => Uncle John's.
Worth a listen to if anything else.
